TILT Feb. 2, 2012

Today, Seattle Children’s Theatre posted this photo, a review from a performance.

There are so many people who do not believe arts education is necessary. Just load the kids up with math and science and reading and other things that’ll help them pass their standardized tests.

Yes, these standard parts of education are important.

But so are accessing parts of your brain that aren’t touched by math problems.

There is something magical about the arts.

Clearly, I get that magic from stage shows.

But what about writing creatively?

Painting?

Sculpting?

Dancing?

There are so many ways that we can show kids how to express themselves.

Don’t give up on arts.

They just might surprise you.
